- Which song is this?
- Who has sung it?
- Why have I posted this? (Of course I love the song but that's not why I posted it!)
I am not going to tell you (like those over enthusiastic Television Promos) that you'll have a chance to win a Home theatre or a Skoda--after all I am not that rich or that famous. :) But if you are like me, then I know it's hard to resist a challenge. (The first two questions are easy--its the third one which I think might be a tie breaker.Lets see!)
I shall wait for all your answers and then update this post with the link to all who answered it right. (Please don't spoil the fun for yourself by reading the comments before you before you answer!)
Fret not--if you don't have a blog I shall link whatever page you ask me to link (FB profile, Orkut profile , Twitter--you surely have something!) or mention.
Your time starts now!
Here is the update as promised:
More than 200 people visited my blog yesterday.Yet only two got all the three questions absolutely right! Some cheated, read the comments and answered--never mind :) I accept with grace. But the clear winners are
Sumit from 'Thoughts of a confused mind' and
one of my favourite bloggers 'Prats from 'Retrospections! Emotional Ecology
The answers are as follows and thank you to all who answered:
The song is '14 years' by Guns N Roses sung by Izzy Stradlin. I posted it because yesterday was a special day-- our 14th wedding anniversary. (The connection between song and day ends here, although I must say I am tempted to sing the song whenever I have a fight with him--heh heh)
We met on 17th of March 1995, very reluctantly because our parents insisted we meet. I was certain that I would not be getting married at that time (as I was only 23 then) and he too was fairly certain that he would meet me, just to get his dad off his back. But life is strange--it is what happens when you make other plans.
We clicked as soon as we met. The thing they say about love in movies and books--that you just know--it is so true! On 27th April 1995, we were married after a dizzy courtship that saw sky rocketing telephone bills and astronomical courier bills (we were based in two different cities).
Now 14 years and two lovely children later, (Touch wood) my face still lights up at the end of the day when I see him and I am so fortunate that I decided to follow my heart and it all worked out. (But please don't tell him I said so--He already thinks he is God) :)
The children made two lovely cards for us. My son has made a three dimensional rose and my daughter has drawn me and my husband in great detail. They really took very long over the cards and the messages inside are very touching. We pretended that we did not know that they were making cards for us.
A recent pic of both of us
Socrates had said "My advice to you is get married: if you find a good wife you'll be happy; if not, you'll become a philosopher."
He hasn't become a philosopher.So I must be good :) (He is not the only one who is modest in our family. heh heh heh).
